3D Printers
3D printing (or additive manufacturing), is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file, using additive processes. The object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the form becomes tangible. Each of these layers can be seen as a thinly sliced horizontal cross-section of the eventual object. It can be a very interesting process to watch!
MakerBot Replicator 2
The UTSC Library Makerspace hosts two MakerBot Replicator 2 3D printers. They can be used with PLA filament for creating models, prototypes, and basic objects.
The FlashForge Creator Pro uses only ABS filament! See more information about filament below.
PLA / ABS Filament
The filament used for 3D printing on our MakerBots is called PLA (polylactic acid) and we provide the rainbow of colours. It is a non-toxic, renewable, and biodegradable resource that is commonly used when manufacturing plastic water bottles. It will naturally degrade when exposed to the environment, so please keep this in mind when creating prints that will have exposure to sun and water. We also have ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) filament which is made of a much stronger plastic, available in a variety of colours. ABS is used exclusively with our FlashForge Creator Pro 3D printer. You can paint on top of both types of filament, and you can also print an item made up of multiple pieces in different colours for assembly.
Simplify 3D Slicing Software
This is the software we use to print files you have created yourself, or saved from the internet. While there is staff on hand to help with the basic setup of your print job, we encourage you to educate yourself in Simplify 3D before printing, in order to maximize your printing time.
